As some of you know, I've been in the process of getting a US visa to live life with the man I met face to face last February. We sent off all our documents for the fiancé visa in October, and I had my interview on march 30th. I have to send off a few more things to the embassy, but once that's done, my visa will be mailed within a couple of weeks to a month and I have a limited time in Canada before it expires, so, I'll be moving to Houston this summer (most likely the first week of July) where we'll have a civil ceremony, and then a wedding to celebrate with our close friends and families in October.
Moving definitely still feels very surreal to me, I've never lived away from my family other than a couple months at a time, so it will be a big adjustment for all of us. But Houston feels more like home to me right now than any other place since that's where Kyle and I will be for a season of our life, and I'm excited for what's to come. In the meantime, I'll be working on demos with Melody for our music, with exciting networking opportunities for our album, file ~more~ paperwork for ~more~ visa things, all that wedding planning stuff you have to do for weddings and trying to pay as little money as possible (because lol weddings are spensive), and attempt to save money even though the US and Canada exchange rate sucks. So, all in all, it's stressful, and it gets to me if I think about it too much, but I have faith in greater things and I know everything will work together in its timing.
Canada has shaped me and challenged me and the people I've encountered throughout my teen years into my 20's are friends that I know I'll have until I'm old(er). Toronto is the place I've spent most time in without moving. Most of my life was spent moving from Switzerland to the States, and 8 years in a country is a record for my family. I'm eternally grateful for each person in my life that has and continues to take part in who I am.
This next season of my life and for the rest to come will be spent alongside my love, in hardships and in joy, we choose to cling to each other and our Maker. I wouldn't have it any other way. If you wish to hang out and/or get your photo taken by me before I leave, feel free to message me. I'll be posting some offers/packages for those who want to shoot with me soon.
